What Our Clients Say About Us

The valuation team quickly understood what we wanted to accomplish, consulted with us, creatively approached the data, and translated the salient points of our client’s financials effectively. This enabled us to use the financial documents to support our claims and tell a compelling story. We had a lot of follow-up as the hearing date neared, and the valuation team at DGC was incredibly responsive and efficient.

Michelle Peirce, Esq. Co-Chair Litigation Practice Donoghue Barrett & Singal

The reporting and analysis that was done for our valuation exercise was thorough and very intelligently presented. We were given all the necessary information including various options, so we could make an intelligent decision. We were brought into the decision making process—it wasn’t treated like a “black box." The team at DGC was direct, smart and a pleasure to work with.
